Day Two of #CPN2018 with Me Too Leader Tarana Burke and Insights on Sexual Assault Education
The second day of #CPN2018 kicked off with a powerful keynote from Me Too Leader, Tarana Burke who shared her own personal journey to advocacy and healing. Burke challenged attendees to consider the role campuses play in building safe, supportive communities for all young people and survivors of sexual assault.
Veteran sexual assault advocate, Senior Director of Prevention Education, Holly Rider-Milkovich led an engaging plenary session, “The State of Sexual Assault Prevention on College Campuses,” providing original EVERFI research and encouraging attendees to discuss the implications of the #MeToo movement on their campus.
Attendees also heard from their colleagues from MIT, Duke University and William College on how they are using climate studies to inform new approaches on their campuses during the workshop “Situational Prevention: Three Campuses Share a New Approach to Comprehensive Sexual Violence Prevention.”
The day concluded with a final keynote from Vice President of Prevention Education, Rob Buelow who left attendees with this challenge:
“How are we producing students who can be change makers in the future?”
